More Looks, Less Maintenance: 10 Bathroom Remodeling Tips

Get twice the enjoyment out of your upcoming bathroom remodel, ensure a renovated bath that not only looks spectacular, but stays sparkling clean with a lot less work.

What Features & Materials Help Your Bath Stay Squeaky Clean?

  1. Engineered Quartz
    Engineered quartz is available in a number of patterns that resemble natural stone, yet has a nonporous surface that is naturally resistant to the proliferation of bacteria, mold, and mildew, making it easy to keep clean.
  2. Frameless Shower Surround
    The area between metal shower frames and shower glass is a prime spot for grunge to accumulate. Lose the frame, lose the grunge.
  3. Spot-Resistant Shower Dividers
    Check with your glass installer about the addition of a water spot resistant glass coating for your shower surround. Coatings such as Clarvista resist spotting and are guaranteed for life with proper care.
  4. Solid Shower Base
    Opt for a solid shower base or a solid quartz slab with textured finish and cut out notoriously difficult to clean grout lines.
  5. Large Format Tile
    If tile is a must, opt for larger format tile, which require fewer grout lines and less cleaning.
  6. Handheld Sprayer
    Forget the bucket brigade. Handheld bath and shower sprayers make cleaning the tub a breeze.
  7. A Faucet with the Perfect Patina
    Faucet patinas that are resistant to fingerprints and water spots such as satin nickel, brushed nickel, satin and oil-rubbed bronze, matte black, and porcelain white help you keep cleaning duties under control.
  8. Skirted or Wall-Mounted Toilet
    The nooks and crannies of the typical toilet can be nearly impossible to get clean. Choose a toilet with a skirted base for a smoother profile and easier cleanup. Or opt for a wall-mounted model for easy sweeping and mopping of the space beneath, kissing hands-and-knees cleaning good-bye.
  9. Antimicrobial Toilet Seat
    Look for toilet seats from top manufacturers with glaze additives that inhibit the growth of mold, mildew, and stain and odor-causing bacteria.
  10. Slide-Off/Quick Release Toilet Seat
    Another troublesome cleaning spot, the place where screws attach the toilet seat to the bowl can be more easily navigated with slide-off or quick-release toilet seat options. These allow you to remove the plastic covers on the screws that attach the seat to the bowl for effortless cleaning.
